WILMOT H. DICKINSON.
Since the last Announcement was issued, the Department has sus-
tained a loss, in the death of Dr. W. H. Dickinson, that seems
irreparable. No man in Iowa had more to do with building up our
college, and attracting to it the support of the profession than he.
His colleagues take this opportunity to put on record their love and
aff ection for him, and to express sorrow at what seems to be his un-
timely taking away.
He was born at Stanstead Junction, Quebec, September 19th, 1828.
Graduated from the Cleveland Homoeopathic Medical College, in
1858, and again from the New York Homoeopathic Medical College
in 1865. He became Professor of Theory and Practice, and Clinical
Medicine, in this Department in 1877, and Dean in 1892. He died in
Des Moines, Iowa, October 26th, 1898, after a long and painful illness.

The; twenty-third annual course of instruction will open on
Wednesday, September 13, 1899 and close on Tuesday, March 27, 1900.
The opening lecture will be given by Professor Gilchrist at 4 p. m., in
the amphitheatre. The course of study extends over four years.
Men and women are admitted on equal terms, no distinction whatever
being made between them. The large and well equipped laboratories
in the University, the hospital facilities afforded by the union of the
college and hospital under one roof, and the opportunity for collateral
study in any department of literature or science, furnish facilities for
securing an education in medicine not to be surpassed. Furthermore,
a diploma from a University of the first rank has a value that does not
attach to that of any private school.
A course has been authorized continuing over six years, which will
enable the student to obtain the degree of B. S., in addition to the
medical degree. See Combined Scientific and Medical Course on page
34 of the University Catalogue.
The requirements for admission are the same as in all the professional
departments of the University, viz: the possession of a diploma from
a high school approved by the University, or some equivalent, as the
completion of the Freshman year in a college of letters of approved
standing, with a sufficient knowledge of L,atin. Failing in these re-
quirements, the applicant for admission to the Freshman class must
pass an examination in English scholarship and Latin sufficient to
admit to the Freshman class in the Collegiate Department. Appli-
cants for admission to advanced standing must present evidence that
they have attended one or more sessions in a reputable medical col-
HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. 5
lege and will be admitted to such class as they may prove themselves
qualified to cuter. All applicants for admission will apply to the
examining committee in the President's office, on Tuesday or Wednes-
day, September 12 or 13, 1899. If admitted, they will then report for
enrollment and assignment of seats at the Registrar's office in the
Homoeopathic Medical Building on Dubuque street. All fees must be
paid to the Secretary of the Board of Regents, and to him only.
Advancement to higher classes is secured only by examination, oral
and written, combined with the quiz record and class standing. An
average of 65 per cent must be secured in any one study to pass that
chair; an average of 75 per cent in all the examinations is necessary
to pass to a higher class, and to secure a degree. A failure to pass in
two or more studies will stop advancement until the conditions are
satisfied. A failure in one study will not stop advancement, but the
student must pass a satisfactory examination in that study before the
close of the year to which he is promoted. The Faculty reserves the
right to determine the class which any student shall enter, in the case
of applicants who have had one or more years in other medical schools.
Graduates in science or arts, also those with degrees in pharmacy
or dentistry, from accredited schools, under the requirements of the
State Board of Medical Examiners, may be granted advanced standing
equal to one year's credit, on a schedule of studies to be determined
in each case.
Graduates of non-homoeopathic medical colleges may be admitted as
graduate students, as follows: If an adeundem degree is sought they
must matriculate in the University, pay a lecture fee and an examina-
tion fee, and pass an examination in the therapeutics of the branches
taught in this Department. If a degree is not sought, a matriculation
fee is to be paid, and such laboratory expenses as may be necessary,
together with a lecture fee, if a full course is taken.
Alumni of this school will be admitted to all lectures and clinics
free of charge.
By order of the Board of Regents no student will be enrolled until
all necessary fees have been paid.
In case any student is unable to pay the fees at the proper time,
such student may, on application to the Dean of the Department, be
granted an extension for a short time.
6 STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA.
Students who do not pay the proper fees or avail themselves of the
provision above mentioned, will be suspended from the Department
until such fees are paid.
The fee for tuition is sixty-five dollars ($65) for each year, of which
forty dollars ($40) is payable on or before October 1st, and the remain-
der on or before January 10th. There are no extra fees whatever, but
for each laboratory course in chemistry, there is required a deposit
of $3, to cover breakage, and to insure the return of all keys at the
close of the session. This sum (breakage, if any, deducted) is re-
turned to the student.
The Combined Course in which the degrees of B. S. and M. D. are
secured in six years, requires two years in the Collegiate Department,
for which the fee is $25 a year. On completion of the Sophomore
year, the student enters the Freshman class in medicine, and the fee
is $75 for each of the last four years of the course.
The above statement of fees is now in effect, and will apply to all
students in the Department, irrespective of the date of matriculation.
OUTLINE OF THE PLAN OF INSTRUCTION.
Chemistry. This subject is studied through the Freshman year.
The course consists of lectures and laboratory work. The lectures
treat first of the general principles of the science; then the subjects of
interest to the student of medicine are discussed. Especial attention
is paid to the compounds found in the body, with their functions and
chemical changes. Poisonous substances and such as are of value in
practical work are also considered. In the laboratory the student be-
gins with tests for metals, particularly the poisonous ones, and passes
to the analysis of complex substances. He learns the methods of
manipulation, and becomes familiar with the properties and actions
of reagents. The sanitary examination of water follows, with the
HOMCEOPATHIC MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. 7
analysis of a variety of pure and polluted specimens. The course is
concluded with the methods of quantitative analysis which are of
most value to the medical practitioner.
Text-books: Simon, Roscoe, and Schorlemmer.
Anatomy. The work in anatomy for the Freshman year will be
the study of bones and joints with final examinations on these topics
at the close of the term. The anatomy of the intestinal tract and
accessory organs will be considered, but this subject will not be com-
pleted until the Sophomore year. Two dissections are required in
this year, with examinations at the close.
Text-book : Gray .
Physiology. In this subject the inductive method will be very
largely employed in imparting instruction. The lectures will be illus-
trated by diagrams, charts, and by experiments upon the lower
animals. The relations between physiology and medical diagnosis
will be presented to the student. During the first year lectures will
cover the following subjects: General physiology, proximate princi-
ples, digestion, absorption, circulation, respiration, excretion, and the
general physiology of the nervous system. The lectures upon these
subjects will be thorough. At the close of the session there will be
an examination, which must be passed before the student can take up
the second year's work in physiology.
Text-books: Landlois and Stirling, Stewart, Kirke, Foster, Amer-
ican Text Book.
Histology. The work in this subject runs through the Fresh-
man year. One lecture a week will be given, many of them being
illustrated by means of the stereopticon. Two hours each week are
devoted to laboratory work in the new histological laboratory, which
is commodious, well-lighted, and supplied with thirty-six new com-
pound microscopes, with all necessary accessories, dissecting micro-
scopes, microtomes of various kinds, injecting apparatus, turn-table,
Each student is furnished with microscope, reagents, and apparatus;
is taught the use of the microscope; and demonstrates, or has demon-
strated before him, the general technique of the subject of histology,
hardening, embedding, sectioning, staining, mounting, etc.
8 STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA.
Histological injections are made before the class. During the term
the student prepares for himself a series of slides, illustrating the
ultimate distribution of the blood, and cellular structure of normal
tissues and organs.
Text-book: Klein's Manual of Histology.
Organon of the Healing Art. Ten lectures on the Organon will be
given, with a view to presenting the teachings of Hahnemann on the
causes of disease, on methods of proving remedies, on examining the
case for therapeutic purposes, as well as on the principles of homoe-
opathy and the application of the law of similars.
Pharmacology. One hour a week for half of the year will be devoted
to the study of the preparation and preservation of drugs, and thera-
Materia Medica. After the Thanksgiving recess, there will be one
recitation a week on symptomatology in which Dewey's Essentials of
Materia Medica will be used as a text-book. There will be an examina-
tion on this subject at the close of the year.
Minor Surgery. Throughout the year, one hour a week, will be
used in teaching minor surgery, including the minor surgical opera-
tions, use of instruments, and care of the same. An examination will
be held at the close of the year.
Clinics. The various clinical lectures are open to Freshmen, who
should attend them, as far as their time will allow. It is desirable
that they attend them as regularly as possible, but attendance is not
Anatomy. The work of the Freshman year will be thoroughly and
carefully reviewed, and in addition the anatomy of the genito-urinary
organs, the nervous system, and that of the special senses, will be
systematically presented. The teaching will be objective, and every
care will be taken to present the subjects in a manner to secure the
best results. Two dissections are also required during this year, thus
making four in the two years. Further advancement may be secured
by an examination on all the work of the year.
Physiology. During the second year a careful review of the sub-
HOMCKOPATHIC MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. 9
jedts treated during the first year will be made. The physiology of
the nervous system, the function of generation, and the special senses
will be thoroughly and comprehensively taught. Final examinations
will be held at the close of the year.
Text-books: The same as in Freshman year.
Chemistry. In the Sophomore year physiological chemistry is taken
up. The lectures are in explanation and amplification of the labora-
tory work. The latter includes the study of the proximate principles
of the body and their chemical changes; artificial digestion experi-
ments, with the isolation and study of their products; the properties
of the constituents of the blood; the methods of testing stains; and the
qualitative and quantitative analysis of urine. The course is com-
pleted by the identification of urinary sediments and calculi.
Text-books: Rockwood's Laboratory Manual, Vaughan and Novy.
Pathology and Bacteriology. The course in pathology and bacteri-
ology in the Sophomore year is presented by means of didactic lectures
and laboratory work. The lectures are devoted to bacteriology, and
general and special pathology, and are illustrated by means of draw-
ings, preparations from the medical museum, and specimens derived
from post-mortem examinations.
The pathological and bacteriological laboratory is situated in the
west hall on the second floor of the Medical Building. It is thoroughly
equipped with new microscopes of the most modern type, and all
apparatus necessary for carrying on every form of bacteriological re-
search. Each student is provided with a table, a microscope, and all
necessary staining reagents.
In this year the lectures are confined to general pathology and the
elementary principles of bacteriology. The laboratory work consists
of two hours each week throughout the year, is illustrative of the
didactic lectures, and comprises the preparation and study of slides
showing the general pathological changes that occur in human tissues.
An examination will be held at the close of the year.
Text-books: Pathology — Stengel, Ziegler, Thoma, Delafield and
Bacteriology— Abbot, McFarland, Crookshank, Sternberg.
Surgical Emergencies. Two lectures a week, throughout the year,
10 STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA.
are given on such subjects as anaesthesia, shock, hemorrhage, wounds,
and traumatism, fractures, dislocations, and other related topics,
which include conditions falling to the care of the general medical
practitioner. These subjects are carefully and thoroughly presented,
great pains being taken to give the student practical instruction. The
course is supplemented by one lecture a week, during a portion of the
term, on bandaging and surgical dressings of all kinds.
Physical Diagnosis. Lectures are given weekly, throughout the
year, upon physical diagnosis, contrasting normal and pathological
conditions, particularly of the chest. This includes practice with
modern appliances for reaching a correct diagnosis in diseased condi-
Materia Medica. During this year three lectures a week are given
on materia medica and symptomatology. The mineral remedies will
be studied during the session of 1899-1900, with weekly quizzes on the
vegetable remedies. A brief review of the toxicological and physio-
logical effects of the drug will be given, then the most prominent and
characteristic symptoms. These symptoms will be grouped as they
have been found useful for therapeutic purposes.
Text-books: Organon, Dewey's Essentials of Materia Medica, Far-
rington's Clinical Materia Medica.
Theory and Practice. The teaching will be didactic and clinical.
General and special pathology will be taught according to the latest
investigations into the etiology and nature of disease. It will be the
aim of the occupant of this chair to teach only that which has secured
the sanction of competent observers, and which has been confirmed by
abundant clinical experience. In teaching the relation of drug patho-
genesis to semieology the well established principles of homoeopathic
therapeutics will be closely and consistently followed. Attendance
upon clinics will be obligatory. As the lecture-room is under the
same roof with the hospital, admirable opportunities for bed-side in-
struction are furnished.
Text-books: Dickinson's Theory and Practice, Arndt's System of
Medicine, Raue's Special Pathology, Goodno's Practice; for reference,
Pepper's Text-book of Theory and Practice of Medicine, Stevens's
Manual of Pathology.
HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. 11
Clinics. The Sophomore class is expected to attend all the clinics,
in addition to the work outlined above. No amount of purely didactic
teaching can possibly compensate for the lack of clinical demonstra-
Anatomy. One hour a week is devoted to surgical and topograph-
ical anatomy, fully illustrated. This course is very useful as prepara-
tory to operative surgery and as related to physical diagnosis.
Text-book: Heath's Applied Anatomy.
Pathology. In the Junior year the lectures are devoted to the
pathology of tumors, and the special pathology of the different organs
of the human body. The laboratory work, consisting of two hours a
week throughout the year, bears a direct relation to the lectures, and
comprises the preparation and study of slides showing the disease
changes that occur in special tissues and organs, including a complete
collection of tumors; embodying furthermore the study of the general
characteristics of micro-organisms, the preparation of artificial media,
and the mounting of slides of the different organisms, with special
reference to the pathogenic bacteria that are of great interest to med-

Toxicology. Instruction in this branch continues through the
Junior year. It is given by weekly lectures supplemented by quizzes.
The action of the principal poisons is considered, and the antidotes
for each are given. The methods of testing for the poisons are ex-
plained and illustrated by experiments.
Text-books: Wormley, Taylor.
Physical Diagnosis. One lecture and demonstration a week on
physical diagnosis will be given in continuation of the work of the
Paedology. Weekly lectures and recitations are given on diseases of
children. The subjects taken up are the diseases of infancy, as well

as early childhood, and while largely treated by the didactic method,
clinical demonstrations are used whenever possible.
Text-books: Tooker, Fisher.
Materia Medica. The work commenced in the preceding year will
be continued. Three lectures a week. In addition one hour a week
is given to applied therapeutics, in which cases will be presented
(hypothetical or actual), prescribed for, and the indications for the
remedies used analytically considered.
Text-books: Farrington's Comparative Materia Medica, and Dun-
Ophthalmology and Otology. During this year the instruction in the
diseases of the eye and ear is both didactic and clinical. Special stress
is laid upon the diagnosis and treatment of those diseases which will
most often present themselves in the work of the general practitioner.
The didactic teaching is illustrated by models and drawings. The
clinics are large and varied, opportunity being thus given to examine
and treat the cases presented.
Text-books: Norton, Buffum, Angell.
Laryngology and Rhinology. Instruction is given in laryngology
and rhinology to the Junior class by weekly lectures and clinics. Stu-
dents are assigned cases for treatment, and given ample opportunity
to become expert in the use of the laryngoscope, rhinoscope, and
other instruments employed in the diagnosis and treatment of the
Text-books: Ivin or Brown.
Obstetrics. This branch is commenced in the Junior year. The
plan of instruction will be the usual didactic method supplemented
by demonstrations, with wet and dry preparations, models and dia-
grams, together with clinical practice whenever possible. Two lec-
tures a week are given, with occasional quizzes and recitations. The
scheme is designed to carry the student forward, after thorough
instruction in the anatomy of the pelvis and generative apparatus,
through ovulation, menstruation, gestation, and normal labor. Use
of the various instruments is taught on the manikin, and every care
taken to prepare the students thoroughly for dealing with complica-
tions. Dystochia, and all forms of abnormal gestation and labor, are

given in the closing portion of the course. The central idea is to give
the practical preference over the merely theoretical.
Text-books: Guernsey, L,eavitt and Lusk; Gran din and Jarnien,
Gynecology. This branch is divided between the chair of obstetrics
and surgery. Medical diseases of women are considered by the chair
of obstetrics during the last half of the term. The surgical diseases
are treated, throughout the year, by the chair of surgery by lectures,
clinics, and demonstrations.
Text-books: Wood's Gynecology, Southwick's Practical Gynecol-
Practice. Theory and practice are continued during this year on the
general lines already laid down. More prominence is given to clinical
instruction, since attendance upon the public clinic is required. The
clinical material is abundant and increasing every year; the number
and variety of cases presented the last year were very large. Partic-
ular effort is made to familiarize the student with such morbid condi-
tions as he is likely to meet in his daily practice.
Text-books: The same as already noted.
Surgical Emergencies. This study is continued during the Junior
year, a final examination being held at the close of the term. While
all phases of emergency surgery are considered, particular attention
is given to fractures and dislocations.
Text-books: Hamilton's Fractures, etc.
Surgical Pathology. Three lectures a week are given on the science
and art of surgery, much stress being laid upon differential diagnosis.
The clinical lectures are supplemental to the didactic instruction, and
attendance is obligatory.
Text-books: Gilchrist's Surgical Pathology, Adams and Chislett's
text-book, or Fisher and Macdonald's text-book.
Clinics. Attendance on all the clinics is required of Junior students.
As will be found noted later, the students in this year will be ex-
pected to attend the weekly meetings of the Johnson County Homoeo-
pathic Medical Society.
14 STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA.
In this year Practice, Obstetrics, Materia Medica, Gynecology,
Ophthalmology, Rhinology, Laryngology, and Surgical Pathol-
ogy will be continued, and final examinations held at the close of the
term. In addition the following will be taken up in short courses.
Operative Surgery. Operations on the cadaver will be made by
each student. The operations will be preceded by a short course of
lectures on the principles underlying operative treatment, and the
legal, professional, personal, and social obligations and amenities of
Applied Therapeutics. Two hours a week are devoted to the study
of selected cases, with the purpose of showing the manner of selecting
the indicated remedy. This study is carried on in the clinics, where
students in this class are required to make diagnosis and prescriptions.
Medical Jurisprudence. A short course is given on forensic medi-
cine by a Professor of the Law Faculty, by appointment, and in such
a manner as not to interrupt the regular work of the class. In con-
nection with these lectures the legal status of the medical practi-
tioner, as determined by the various State laws, will be presented and
Insanity. Alienism and mental disorders, are taught in a short
course of lectures, given by appointment.
The clinics of this department are open to students of all the classes,
but the attendance is not obligatory in the Freshman year. All the
clinics are full; in some of them the capacity of the hospital has been
severely taxed. The general arrangement and clinical system are as
follows: The House Surgeon at the commencement of the term details
two students from the Senior class as clinical assistants. One of these
retires after one week's service, one after two weeks. One student a
week is detailed thereafter, so that each Senior student has two con-
secutive weeks of clinical work. The duties are to assist at all clinics,
and to attend to all dressings in the hospital, under the supervision
of the House Surgeon. This gives unusual facilities for practical in-
HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. 15
stmelion. In the medical, eye, and ear clinics each member of the
Senior class will he given repeated opportunities for examination of
patients, and will he required to diagnose the disease and suggest
method of treatment. The clinics are largely patronized, the numher
oi cases and the variety being fully equal to the college clinics else-
where. The clinics are held as follows:
Medical Clinic. Thursday afternoon, service of the Professor of
Theory and Practice.
Surgical Clinic. Saturday morning, service of the Professor of Sur-
Eye and Ear Clinic. Tuesday afternoon, service of the Professor of
Gynecological Clinic. Friday morning, service of the Professor of
Obstetrical Clinics. By appointment, service of the Professor of
Subclinics. The subclinics are held two or more times a week, to
which sections of the Senior class are admitted, where opportunity is
afforded all to make examinations in gynecological cases, and the use
of various instruments of precision for purposes of diagnosis.
Medical and surgical treatment, and nursing are free for patients
entering the general clinics. Board in the hospital is furnished for
$7.00 a week.
Correspondence with reference to admission to the clinics or hospi-
tal should be had with the professor having charge of the particular
clinic, or the Registrar of the Faculty. Arrangements can be made
for thejreception of a limited number of obstetrical cases, only between
the 15th of September and the 15th of February.
Dispensary. In connection with the clinics a dispensary has been
opened, where the clinical assistants, under the direction of the Faculty,
prescribe for and visit out-patients, as well as attend such cases of
obstetrics as apply. The dispensary is growing in patronage and
influence, and has become a highly important and profitable portion
of the work, affording, at once material for the clinics and practical
instruction to the attendant.
16 STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA.
TRAINING SCHOOL FOR NURSES.
A training school for nurses has been authorized by the Board of
Regents, the complete course covering three years. The first year is
devoted to preliminary studies fitting the pupil for the active work ,
that is, as nurses in the hospital. Candidates for admission to the
Training School must not be under twenty nor over thirty-five years
of age, must have a common school education, and must present two
letters of recommendation as to their capability, qualifications, and
moral character. No other examination for admission will be re-
The first year, covering the preliminary work, begins and closes
with the medical term of the University. A fee of five dollars will be
charged, payable at the beginning of the term to the Registrar of the
Faculty. The work of this year is entirely didactic, consisting of
lectures upon anatomy, physiology, special nursing in diseases of the
eye, ear, nose, and throat, and on practical nursing. For cases of
emergency and home-nursing, this course is especially desirable.
Aside from their practical work, during the second year, the nurses
will have one recitation each week, and during the third year special
topics for essays will be arranged. Those who have completed the
preliminary work, at the beginning of the second year, may be entered
upon one month's probation in the hospital, during which time they
will receive board, lodging, and laundry, but no compensation. If
they are found satisfactory, they shall at the end of the first month
and during the remainder of the second year in addition to their living,
as above, receive $8 a month for personal expenses, with a slight in-
crease during the third year. This sum is not to be regarded as wages,
the instruction given being in itself full compensation for all services
rendered. Those who complete the three years' course will receive
a suitable certificate signed by the President of the University and by
the Secretary of the Board of Regents. The graduating exercises occur
in connection with those of the Department. For further information
address the Matron, Miss Mary A. Raff.

BOARD AND ACCOMMODATIONS.
Good board can be obtained at from #3 to #5 a week. By associat-
ing in clubs, students may supply themselves with good accommoda-
tions at a material reduction from the customary prices.
Students will be furnished with all necessary information concern-
ing rooms and boarding by applying to the Y. M. C. A. Information
REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION.
To be admitted to the degree of Doctor of Medicine (M. D.) in this
Department, the student must exhibit to the Dean evidence of having
pursued the study of medicine for four years; must have attended four
courses of lectures, of at least six months each, the last of which shall
have been in this institution; and must be not less than twenty-one
years of age.
Arrangements have recently been made with the Faculty of the
Collegiate Department by which it will be possible for a student to
complete the course in science and the course in the Homoeopathic
Medical Department in six years, thereby obtaining the degrees of B.
S. and M. D. See page 34 of the University Catalogue.

JOHNSON COUNTY HOMCEOPATHIC MEDICAL SOCIETY.
The meetings of this society are held weekly in the lecture-room of
the Department, and have been very useful adjuncts to the instruction
given. Senior students are associate members, and enjoy all the
privileges of membership, except that of voting and the right to hold
office. The Society has proved of the utmost value to all privileged to
attend its meetings, from the fact that such topics as degeneration,
heredity, sanitation (public and domestic), and many others, are
presented by members of other faculties of the University.
